3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 22oz. As Boatswain American IPA. It pours a clear, pale amber body with a dense, two-finger off-white head. The aroma is sweetish and caramel-ish, with some flowers, grass and perfume. Rather sweet on the palate, some caramel flavor, as well as grass and some faint orange notes. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Lasting sweet finish. Not very bad this one, but as an IPA it fails. At least in my book. Too sweet and not enough on the hoppy side. 130810

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Fresh & Easy in Vacaville, CA. Pours clear copper with a creamy off-white head. Decent citrus/floral aroma over some caramel. Med body. Flavor is instantly malty with bitter. It relaxes to a hint of treacle with bitter. I’m gonna stick with citrus/floral for hop. It finishes bitter, but there is still something that makes me think of treacle.
